    Before I kept my professional calendar under my school email and my personal calendar under my personal email. I realize I can share these. But do I want to have my personal available under school? Can admin view this? I don't have anything to hide nor do I think they search it's just the thought. Am I over thinking this? Last year I switched back to paper because I really did not like having two calendars. But then I did not like the lack of convenience of paper.
    So...do I go back to Google or head to Staples for a calendar...hmmmmm?????

    Personally, I like keeping my work and personal life calendars separate. But, I have both visible on my phone. So, anytime I want to compare the two to ensure that there is nothing overlapping, I check the calendar on my phone.

    I use a Google calendar for work, because that's what my district has provided. I use Apple Calendar for my personal calendar. Both are synced on my iPhone.

    I put everything on my work calendar, but that's because I have a very boring life :) I know my district wouldn't snoop in my calendar but I also know if I contravened our contract, they could look at my calendar. So, for example if a teacher put on their calendar, party at 7 on Friday and called in sick on Friday, the District could use this in a dismissal case, so I'd generally do what bella suggested because your private life really deserves its privacy.

    I also live a fairly boring life. I just am the of the mind that work and personal life should remain separate. I am one of the few people I know who won't even bring my work computer home (except in very rare cases). I keep all of my files on separate Google Drive accounts (one for personal life and one for school), so that I can access my files from any computer... It's a rare day when I use my work computer for personal business. Although, I frequently use my home computer to conduct work.

    It's not out of fear of my district snooping. It's more a matter of control. I like to know that I have control over my calendar, software, email, files, etc. I don't want anything I care about stored on work-controlled tech should I ever find myself leaving my district and still want/need access to things related to my personal life.

    If I share my Google work calendar to my personal Google calendar but not vise versa, school cannot view it correct?

    That should be the case, yes.

    Thank you!
    That may be my best option.
